Surgery Friday Morning

Posted , 5 users are following.

Well the day has come for my surgery. Friday morning I am having a total hysterectomy and am nervous but not as bad as I thought I would be . I am extremely overweight with high blood pressure and anxiety and just hate being put to sleep but it has to be done cause of the cancer I have so will just have to keep telling myself god has my back and will make sure everything goes well an I will be cancer free and make a full recovery.

Thanks in advance for reading my post.

      Clear Jelly or jello (without any fruit in it) is classed as a liquid, hope that makes sense?

      You will be fine I'm sure Michele, I was also overwieght when I had my surgery and on Beta Blockers for Atrial Fibrilation and high blood pressure. You are not kept under an anaesthetic for very long these days, you are bought round very quickly afterwards.

      I'll be thinking of you tomorrow.

    What I mean is clear fruit flavoured jelly but without fruit pieces in.

    All the best Michele. Be strong. You can beat this. BTW I haven't heard of the liquid diet regime the day before any pelvic surgery. What's it for?
